Features and Ease of Use
Though Aspx.gr seems to specialize in ASP.NET Hosting, its hosting features mirror those of other standard web hosting services. Some of the key features include:
- Domain name registration
- Unlimited subdomains
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Multisite hosting
- Webmail with auto responders & antispam
- MySQL 5.x/SQL servers
- Support for PHP and ASP.NET 2.0 supported
- Advanced web statistics
Aspx.gr offers free basic web hosting to customers who buy new domains or transfer existing ones. This introductory package includes 100MB disk storage, 1POP3 email, one FTP account, and 2GB monthly bandwidth. Small as it may seem, this hosting space is enough to host your custom PHP, ASP.NET web app, or a WordPress/Joomla CMS website. I would encourage starters to give it a try before they upgrade to Standard, Professional, or Enterprise packages.
Besides shared hosting, Aspx.gr also offers high availability VPS with a 99.95% SLA. Hosted on Microsoft Azure Cloud, its VPS solution is ideal for Greek and European customers who want stable hosting for their critical applications. VPS servers are hosted in multiple data centers across the world and well-distributed to minimize the possibility of server downtime or failure.
Once you join Aspx.gr, you will also qualify for free website listings on all major search engines including Google, Yahoo, and In.gr. It’s a great way of putting your business on the map online. If you’re just starting out, the web design team can help you set up or upload your website and from there, the SEO team will take care of website optimization.
Aspx.gr seems to understand the agony that businesses go through when they lose key website files or databases. To forestall such a scenario, the company provides online backup and restore services at no extra cost. I believe this solution will come in handy to customers who operate mission-critical websites where data is a matter of life and death for their businesses.
Pricing and Support
Aspx.gr has three hosting plans each with three billing cycles; six-months, one-year, and two-years. Though not rich in terms of features, its hosting packages are affordable and most standard features are included. For a reasonable fee, you get extras such as additional monthly bandwidth, website SSL certificates, dedicated IP addresses, and additional disk space. But what I really like about Aspx.gr is its custom hosting package which lets you create and personalize a solution that matches your needs.
From where I sit, I can tell you the customer service team is a friendly and helpful lot who can resolve your hosting problems quickly. I was eager to know why the control panel demo wasn’t accessible and one of the FB support agents told me it was disabled because of security reasons. Support is available in Greek and English.
